Those disciples of old –the first followers of Jesus- rejoiced when they experienced the presence of Jesus after His Resurrection. The stories that had circulated throughout the countryside, and the various appearances of the Risen Jesus buoyed up their spirits and strengthened their belief.
We –the disciples of Jesus today- have the same opportunity to bolster our faith! We have participated in the Easter Rites! We also witness Jesus making Himself present to us every time bread is broken in the Eucharistic celebration, the Mass. We hear the stories of God’s presence and activities every time the Scriptures are proclaimed in the public Liturgies and in our family and personal reading of the Word of God, the Bible. Let us rejoice!
The empty tabernacle is a reminder that Jesus has died. Through His Death He has bought redemption for all of us..
We eagerly await His Resurrection.
